Wadley hosting ‘Just Us Girls’ on October 30

Two-hour event celebrates, encourages cancer screenings

By Rick Kennedy, managing editor
One of the big cancer awareness events in October appropriately resides at the region’s main healthcare provider, Wadley Regional Medical Center, in Hope coming up this Tuesday starting at 5 p.m.
A “Ladie’s Night Out” style event encourages women to “grab your sister, your girlfriend, your mom, and join in a night of fun, friendship, and shopping,” and on the more serious side, encourages regular screening mammograms and checkups.
Early detection and increased awareness have increased the numbers of women surviving cancer more and more in recent years. The event aims to educate local women about the facts and benefits of annual screens. Annual mammograms, clinical breast exams and self-breast exams all promote early detection which is important to beating breast cancer.
In between the vendors, food and fun, a screen mammogram opportunity will be made available by appointment at the night’s event.
As in recent years in Hope, the event does draw a number of local and regional vendors, many already familiar faces in Hope.
This year’s participants include: Crosses and Quotes (Sherry Evans), Be-Dazzled Boutique (Patricia Rhoads), Sweet T’s Boutique (Trenace Stuart), Unraveled Boutique (Anna Powell), Pampered Chef (Valerie Fish), DoTerra Essential Oils (Lauren Allen), Tupperware (Jolene Lockhart), Scentsy (Teresa Kruger), Crochet Treasures (Rhonda Morrow), Plunder Design Jewelry (Krissie Talley), Dillard’s (Sheri Saddler), Log Cabin Soapery (Sue Nesom), Lasting Impressions (Tracy Talley), Avon (Tiffany Davis), Majestic Earware (Marla Jones), Nurture Bath and Body (Tessah Singleton), and ​​​​​​​Grace and Heart Jewelry (Shirley Cowan).
